Walking through the local Poblenou barrio in Barcelona, you could be mistaken for being in a town outside of the popular bustling metropolis. However, it's just on the outskirts of the city. The vibrant, local-feeling streets are lovely to explore, and it's a bonus that the area is right near the beach. After a morning stroll, grab a coffee and visit Cruixent for delicious baked pastries and cakes. Find yourself a nearby bench in the sunshine and watch the world go by.
